Point Spread: -4½/-103 Syracuse
You should always play on favorites of 3.5 to 9.5 points like Syracuse when they are revenging a same season loss against an opponent playing their second road game in three days. This system is 79-41 (66%) in favor of the favorite. The reason this system is so relevant is because the limited time between games will not allow Marquette to prepare for Syracuse. After the regular season loss Syracuse would have already made the changes, or at least they will be aware of the changes, they need to make to win this game. Syracuse has looked great during the NCAA Tournament taking down a solid California team as well as the #1 seed Indiana Hoosiers. Marquette has squeaked off wins over Davidson and Butler to make it this far. Marquette shot 54% against Miami and that is extremely unlikely to take place again against this stout Orange defense. Syracuse has held opponents to an average of 59.1 points per game on 37.2% shooting. They have the talent to earn a spot in the Tournament Championship and it starts today with a win over Marquette.
